Great burgers and gf fries. Salad was good also. We were just specific about what we needed. We’ve gone several times and it’s always been great!

Disappointing after reading the reviews here. Only thing listed on the gf menu were burgers (not all the ones on the main menu) and salads. No sides listed. I had been looking forward to a burger but was hungrier than just a burger. Got a large Cobb salad with chicken instead. Even though they specifically put it in as a gluten allergy, it was delivered with croutons. They brought it back rather quickly, so I assume they lifted the chicken and placed it on a fresh bowl of salad. Luckily no reaction so far, but disappointing and didn’t feel confident eating.

Not sure if we picked a bad day, but they were out of GF buns and said fries are cross-fried so we ended up with a salad and a lettuce-wrapped bun. They brought out the salad decked out in croutons as well, which didn’t leave us confident for the meal. Was really hoping for a burger and fries!

Ordered my burger and explained I needed a gluten free bun— immediately pointed out the friend onions and checked if would like them caramelized instead. Then offered gluten free safe fries. Brought my food out separately and checked in with me throughout. Felt very taken care of and like I could actually relax over my meal. DEFINITELY go here if you have gluten sensitivity or celiacs!

Waitress rushed us a little bit but I totally understand since it was a busy game night. She assured us there was a dedicated fryer, and I got a butt load of fries and a gf bun for my burger!

Spoke to our waitress about gluten-free menu, she was able to give us one. I ordered the fries since there were other reviews saying they fried them in a separate fryer. Waitress came back and suggested we not to get the fries because they fry them in the same fryer as the onion rings. Just a heads up, maybe something has changed or they didn’t feel like changing fryers that night. It was a Friday night around 7 pm when we went, it was extremely busy

We are visiting from out of town and figured we’d try this place out based on reviews and location. We were so pleased with everything. The food was awesome! Really great gluten free buns and fries. Staff was super friendly and helpful. We will definitely be heading back before we leave town!

The waiter was very knowledgeable about what was and wasn’t gluten free, double checked everything and we had no issues. My burger was excellent and the fries were fried in the gluten free dedicated fryer. We will be going back

Had a delicious Turkey burger on a great bun tonight! I called ahead to ask if the turkey burger patty is GF, it is. I prefer Turkey over beef so I ordered one of the GF burger options and subbed the turkey patty. The bun did not fall apart and the fries were delicious!

They have a dedicated fryer, but just told me that they put the fries on a pan after they are fried where they put other fried foods and refuse to do otherwise. She said she wouldn’t eat the fries as a Celiac, which is the whole reason we came all the way here. Bummed.

Went last night before a show for the first time. GF menu is pretty similar to the regular burger menu. Just no starters. I ordered the Garlic Three Cheese burger with fries. The server actually saw that we had GF menus when we sat down and he went to ask about the fryer without us having to ask. He told us it’s a brand new fryer and dedicated to fries.

Burger came out and everything looked so good. GF bun was actually really good. Fries are amazing. I’d eat here again!

Unique burger combos and delicious all around. Separate gluten free menu, dedicated fryer, GF buns, homemade GF ketchup. The GF bun held up nicely! Highly recommend if visiting downtown Cincinnati.

Great server, Brendon. GF menu. We are very new to GF life, having celiac. My son had his first GF bun and actually liked it. He also got the chocolate shake and it was delicious.

The server handed me a GF menu and walked me through the menu! I got burger with a GF bun...fabulous! The bun didn't fall apart either! Fries are made in a separate fryer. Great service and I didn't worry about cc at all!

Gluten free menu upon request. Most all burgers available. Also the waiter asked me if it was an allergy, to which I said yes. He offered me gluten free fries even though not on the menu. Said they have and use a separate gluten free only fryer. Good food and good service. None of the appetizers were marked gluten free.

Ordered GF bun for my burger & was told they had GF fries…. Not sure if the fries got put in the same fryer as non-GF (other reviews said dedicated GF fryer) but there was definite cross-contamination of some sort

Went here and ordered off the gluten free menu. My sandwich came out on a regular bun (I asked if it was gluten free because it looked like my husband’s regular bun). The person said no, said the sandwich would be remade and brought back out. Not even 90 seconds later I had the same sandwich in front of my just on a gluten free bun.

I explained to the server that the sandwich had to be totally remade because I have celiac disease and the cross contact will harm me. The manager came over and profusely apologized and comped my sandwich and had it remade and checked herself for cross contact. I did eat the new one (by the time I got it my husband had been done with his food for 10 minutes) but my stomach did start to hurt soon after, so I’m positive there was some cross contact still happening.

I’ll give them a second chance at a later date (first time there) but please be careful eating here!
